    Quoted from Zukram:

    What was the promotion ? I was somewhat surprised with my latest pin purchase, got a stern lanyard and a stern t-shirt included..

    For Stern's 30th anniversary you had to email your proof of purchase to Stern and they sent you a t-shirt. This was a couple years ago. The machines came with a flyer inside with the offer.

    This sounds an awful lot like "Loot Crate" where you sign up to be shipped unsold promotional junk from random movies and conventions.

    Quoted from CrazyLevi:

    I don't see anybody ragging on Brawny paper towels for price when Bounty costs more!

    You, clearly, don't hang out in the paper towel forums!

    Yeah, that’s pretty much what I thought. I’m putting my $30 towards my next Stern NIB machine purchase where it will actually reduce the cost of my machine by about $30 bucks.

    Probably order it this week if there is any Pros in stock. Thank you for your concern Squizz.

    Yawn

    Quoted from pinmaniac:

    Of course, I asked several times without a valid reason being offered. It is a known issue. I don't know of anyone who actually received a shirt from that promotion.

    I received one for my purchase of a Ghostbusters pro. Though I think they sent me a different size than what I requested...

    Yes I got one too for Ghostbusters LE. Pretty sure my size was also wrong.

    #258 69 days ago

    Am I the only one here who has more than enough pinball t-Shirts already?

    Any of you guys who've gotten stiffed from Stern, reach out, I'll send you one if it'll help smooth things over.

    Send one to VIRELAND if he promises to stop vwhining.

    TY, but that's where I was when I tried to find them before. These are my choices in the support area.

    Service bulletins
    Game code
    Coinage cards
    Registration
    contact us

    None of which have this info. Unless it's hidden somewhere.

    Ahhhh, it was the screen with the boxes. Thought it was in the drop down section. Didn't know there was a section beyond the boxes. Looked like I was already at the bottom of the page. Tricky. Should be part of the drop down menu as well. Thank you.

    New email with photos and a video of the new Munsters topper just came out.

    And a picture of the topper is already on Facebook.

    #265 67 days ago

    This program is not exciting news at all.

    #266 67 days ago

    I wonder if the insider program will reveal where in Sterns schedule the Ghostbusters code update is? Lol

    #267 67 days ago
    Quoted from PanzerFreak:

    Insiders will be first to know when Stern announces they aren't going to do any more GB updates.

    The dirty little secret I heard was Lyman was asked to do a GB code update, so he took one home, dowsed it in gasoline, lit it on fire, and invited all his friends over for a bonfire and weenie roast. He was last seen holding a flaming Mia Tia, laughing hysterically with a glint in his eye yelling “I’ll see you all burn in Hell before I fix GB code!!!” That was also just about the same time George Gomez was last seen walking into Dwights cube with with a pair of pliers and a blow torch. The burnt out carcass of the GB cabinet can still be seen from space on Google Earth.

    #271 67 days ago

    Hmm I didn't get the email.

    But we got a video!

    I guess that the program is very successful. Haven't gotten my lunch box after a month, so they must be busy!

    #274 53 days ago

    Waiting on mine as well. I think they had such a big response they had to order more shirts.

    For those that are surprised about a $30 fan club, I was prompted to check the auto-renewal status on our D23 membership today.... This is the official Disney fan club for those who aren't familiar.

    Stern is just scratching the surface of scientifically extracting dollars from their markets, Disney is the expert.

    Yea! Just got my lunch box today!
    I heard that they ran out of shirts before, so this is the second round.

    Got the shirt, pin, and greeting card. No patch.

    #276 18 days ago

    I've been waiting on mine for over a month now

    #277 18 days ago

    Mine was two months. Patience I guess.

    Just contacted Stern and they will make it right. Patch is coming to me next week.

    All hail Stern!

    #278 17 days ago

    So have you guys been getting heaps of insider info?

    #279 17 days ago

    I signed up the day they announced it and still haven't gotten my welcome box. I was told shirts was the reason, but it's been months now.

    Sigh.

    I'm in no rush but some communication would be cool. "Hang in there, we are still working on fulfilling all the boxes."

    The video of the unreleased Munsters topper in action was cool. But other than that not too much.

    No heaps. If it’s on there, it’s usually reposted here.

    I have enjoyed some of the video, however.

    #283 13 days ago

    I got an email letting me know my Stern package should arrive Thursday. Yay.
    I bet they get a lot more subscribers now that people know they could win a playfield.
    I hope they raffle off some Ghostbusters and Deadpool playfields but most of all I'd lose my mind if I won a Batman '66 playfield.

    #284 12 days ago

    My insider package arrived today....crushed beyond recognition. It comes in a plastic bag. I opened the bag to find a crushed box with a shirt in it. The pin and patch were in the bag. I'm not really complaining but I kind of wanted the box to keep some extra plastics and titans in it
    Why even waste the money on the nice boxes with plastic handles? Ship them in basic brown if you dont care about them. Just a weird business decision to make custom boxes then ship them out to be destroyed before they get to members.
    Fingers crossed they raffle off a Batman '66 playfield.

    Indeed. Mine was bashed-up as well when it arrived. So much for keeping the outer box or collecting it. Ha ha.

    Be grateful Express Scripts now ships their meds in bags not in box WTF

    #288 11 days ago

    Stern came through and shipped me the missing patch!

    Kudos to Mark Sullivan for getting it out to me!
